Versailles outlasts Smith-Cotton

Versailles got out of a brief slump Monday night with a 92-87 win over Smith-Cotton out of Sedalia. 

After winning the Stover Tournament on January 9, the Tigers have seen some tough games losing five with four of them being less than double digits.

The Tigers trailed 33-29 at the break and a strong 36-point effort in the third quarter gave the team the cushion it needed down the stretch.

Seth Newton led Versailles with 27 points and added a trio of rebounds and steals, Ryder Williams put up 18 points to go with three rebounds and a pair of steals and assists and both Justin Hamrick and Mikhail Gulyayev also reached double figures with 12 points each. Eli Gulyayev recorded seven points and finished with seven rebounds and steals and four assists. The Tigers finished with 28 steals as a team on the defensive end.
